Kroger Gears up to Administer COVID Vaccine

Kroger has been preparing to administer the COVID vaccine through their retail clinic chain Little Clinic. Kroger Company enjoyed record growth in 2020 as the pandemic led to an increased demand for essentials like groceries and home cleaning supplies. 

The chain is doing well in terms of sales which it credits to its e-commerce platform, plus popular in-store brands like Simple Truth, for delivering that improved growth. In addition, Kroger offers curbside pick up at more than 82% of stores which has also helped it to maintain its market share during this period. Krogers’ new fulfillment center has created a partnership with grocery tech company Ocado. The fulfillment center can use robotics and other digital technology to fulfill online orders. They have also introduced KroGo shopping carts just like Amazon dash Carts that can be used as visual scanners. The cart gives shoppers a running subtotal of purchases as items are added, helping people stay on budget.

My Son recently moved to Owasso OKLAHOMA Since this is such a growing area in the Country why don’t you put a Kroger store in Oklahoma especially in the Tulsa Owasso area I believe your business would take a big boost if you incorporated some stores in this area of the country
